In Person Help

In an effort to help combat the spread of the coronavirus, most in-person help is temporarily unavailable. However, local navigators and brokers are authorized to assist consumers with the Maryland Health Connection application by phone. Please contact a navigator in your area or call our call center for assistance.

Thousands of trained staff are available throughout Maryland to help you apply and enroll
